If you ever need to create a second account on a service, you will need to use an email address that is not already associated with another account unless you are using Gmail.
If you use Gmail, you can use the same email adress to create as many accounts as you want on social networking sites or some other Web service.
Let's see how.
Gmail addresses are different from his Outlook, of Live ID or other services, because you cannot use periods or dashes in the name. Gmail does not allow it to create new addresses. Google's email service even completely ignores symbols like periods and pluses, which you can use to create emails that point to the same account.
So when you sign up for a service to create a new account, there is a box asking you to enter your email. Instead of creating a new email address for your second account, use the same (Gmail) email, but add a dot in the middle, for example:
Your regular email is: email@example.com. You can create all of the following emails:
firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
Instead of a dot you can use - or symbol +.
The service you want to subscribe to will see them as new emails, but Google will handle them as your email because it ignores the symbols. All incoming emails will end up in your inbox.
